[A]An old map I have found
So in [D]thoughts I am bound
For old [A]Ireland's green mountains and
[E]To the [A]land of my heart through the [D]heart of my [A]land
I am wondering to[E]night in my [A]dreams
[A]As I view Sligo bay
And [D]not so far away
There's Coo[A]laney and the girl I once[E] knew
And my [A]eyes
start to fill
As I [D]think of Lough Gill
In this [A]map they have [E]coloured in [A]blue.
[A]Oh I'm 5000 miles away from [D]Sligo
[A]Wondering why I ever had to [E]go,,[B]
[E]Oh I'm [A]5000 miles away
Pre[A]tending I'm [E]on my way back [A]home.[E] [A]
is there And [D]there's [D]ballisodare
Bally[a]moate holds old memories for[E] me
From the [A]Ox mountain range to the
[D]coastline of Grange,
There's Ros[A]common to [E]Letrim you [A]see.
[A]So from Sligo
Once a[D]gain I must roam
Back a[A]long the along highway eighty-[E]three
And my [A]memory's are gold, in
this [D]atlas i hold
And re[A]turn here to [E]reali[A]ty.
Oh I'm [B]5000 miles away
[B]Wondering why I ever had to [F#m]go[C#m]
[F#m]Oh I'm [B]5000 miles away from [E]Sligo
I'm [C#m]on my way back [B]home.
